If you've come across the Lost & Found quests in Dead Island 2, then you'll know they can be some of the most mysterious and interesting parts of the game. You can come across them at random by exploring different locations in the world, and you'll often be tasked with finding a person or location only by following clues, rather than the typical waypoints that show up most of the time. This makes them a bit more challenging, relying on orienteering rather than following basic directions, so this Lost & Found Guide Hub will collect guides for all of the lost and found missions in one place. 

Dead Island 2 Lost & Found Guides

In total, there are 15 Lost & Found missions to get your hands on throughout the course of Dead Island 2. You can find a guide on how to find and complete each one at the links in the list below:

Dead Island 2 Sole Survivor Achievement

The Sole Survivor achievement/trophy requires you to complete all 9 of the Lost & Found Missing Person quests. Keep in mind that only a few of these quests are available in the Sirlin Hotel at a time, with some requiring story progression as they involve areas that appear later on. None of the Missing Person quests are missable, so you can always leave them until after the main story is completed.

Dead Island 2 Sharpest Tool in the Box Achievement

The Sharpest Tool in the Box achievement/trophy only requires you to complete 5 of the 6 Lost & Found Weapon Quests. Some of these will be marked on the map, though many require you to kill named zombies that are not marked with the quest icon. None of the Lost & Found Weapon Quests are missable, and they all reward you with useful legendary weapons that are not obtainable elsewhere.
